Word from around the blogs:

  • Five Hole Fanatics:  Early season reactions.  While I don’t think Colorado will sustain their current pace, it should be interesting to see where things stand in a month.
  • Deadspin:  Oilers’ Souray none too pleased with Ex’s ‘Erotic Revue’.   What’s up, what’s up!!
  • Mileposts and Goalposts:  Aftermath.  Doesn’t look good for the Wild if they don’t have any prospects in the pipelineAt least the Vikings won today!!
  • The Hockey News:  Time finally catching up to the Predators.  As Rich wrote the other day, these guys just don’t have enough scoring right now.
  • Puck Rakers:  Commodore getting close.  Good news for the Jackets.
  • Andrews’ Dallas Stars Page:  Stars bounce back, bounce by Blackhawks.  Gotta feel bad for Huet, as that bounce totally ‘Salo’d’ him.
  • Fear the Fin:  Potential Shark milestones that could be achieved this season.  Some big ones could be achieved this season.  Look to see Thornton get a lot of assists this season.

  • SenSay:  A break only a GM could love.  Looks like the Senators are going to have lots to do while they wait to play their next game on ThursdayWhy in a condensed season are there 5 days off between games?
  • Maple Leafs Hot Stove:  Feeling sluggish? Grab some Horton’s!  Seems like the price the Leafs would have to pay is too high for GM Brian Burke.
  • Bloge Salming:  Behind closed doors in the Leafs dressing room.  The only ray of sunshine in Leafs land.
  • Habs Inside/Out:  Marc-Andre Bergeron.  Hopefully he can add some offense on that backend.
  • The Bruins Blog:  Bruin of the week.  I would agree that it must be tough to pick someone when Boston went 1-2-0 this week.
  • Die by the Blade:  The week ahead for the Sabres.  Some very big questions heading into this week.
  • Lightning Strikes:  Big line changes for Tampa Bay Lightning: Vinny Lecavalier and Marty St. Louis back together.  I thought that Tanguay would be a good set-up man for Vinny but perhaps being reunited with Marty will increase his goal totals.

  • NHL Rumours:  Cogliano, Horton could be shopped, Kovalchuk to get big KHL offer?  I can’t see Kovalchuk leaving for the KHL unless the money is insane.
  • Fantasy Hockey Scouts:  Fantasy hockey tweet off!  Cool new feature from the guys over there.  Check it out.
